We specialize in sites for small to medium sized organizations and businesses
Nu-Look Media is a family-owned business located in the Portland metro area. For more than two decades we've helped support our local community by pro bono or low-cost work for important causes and hiring local.
We have been working with individuals, organizations, and businesses along the west coast since 2000 to develop and maintain their online presence. The software used allows you to accept and track donations, offer membership, send bulk email, handle advocacy campaigns, contact voters, sell online, and more. Because many of the systems we use are open-source software, there are no costs to acquire that software. Specialized services, such as online ordering for restaurants, would include fees from the service provider.
We can customize packages for you that range from initial setup only to monthly maintenance and development. We can also train your employees and volunteers to be able to maintain the content on the site.
While we primarily work with individuals and organizations along the west coast, we are not limited to just this region. In addition to meeting via conference call, video chat, and email, arrangements can also be made for travel to your location. In recent years, we've worked with organizations across the globe, such as Intermediaries for Justice in the UK.
But the question you may be asking yourself is this - why do you need a web presence? We explain why here.
In today's age, your customers are looking for you online - a website, social media, and Google listing. If they can't find this information - or it's outdated - they may end up going to your competitor. Don't lose business because your information can't be found - or worse, is outdated! Let us help you get online and keep your information updated.
Run a restaurant or food cart? We can help take photos of your offerings, list daily and weekly specials online, keep your online menu updated, and more. Customers are routinely looking to social media to see what you are offering and if there are specials or a soup of the day. Don't lose customers because your presence is lacking.
Non-profits and community groups
Getting information out to your volunteers and donors is a critical part of an organization's success. While you can rely somewhat on social media, you still need a robust website for those who don't use social media, who need more detailed information on your organization, etc. Not to mention the ability to take donations, send bulk email, sign people up for events (paid and free), and more.
Need a website to display your booklist, announce upcoming books, post synopsis or sneak peaks, offer a reader newsletter, and more? We can help you get online with a personalized domain name, email accounts, newsletter e-blasts, and more. We can also do monthly updates of the software that runs your site and do content management. Contact us for more details.
Political candidates and organizations
It's not too early to go online with your site for the upcoming election cycles. It is important that you get your website up and running as soon as possible. This allows you to take donations, create an online buzz, distribute materials among supporters, let people know about events, and more. It is very important to have your online presence up and running before your official announcement.
Organizations often misjudge how long it will take them to pull together and edit content, which means it is always a good idea to start building your web site as soon as you make the decision to run.
Web site design and maintenance
Much of our work has been in the political and non-profit arena. Jenni has served as webmaster for numerous organizations over the last two decades, including The Grantsmanship Center, the Multnomah County Democratic Party, Democracy for Oregon, and Oregon Bus Project. We have also built sites for the Los Angeles branch of the Sierra Club, Arts for LA, California Alliance for Arts Education, and National Alliance of Victims' Rights Attorneys. Over the years, we have worked with organizations big and small, and can work with you to build a package that meets your budget and needs.
We can help your organization build anew or redesign an existing website. We have been using Drupal since 2003 and WordPress since 2010 and can assist you in creating a new site or refreshing an outdated site. We can also help you get your donations, membership sales, ticket sales, and merchandise sales online with Paypal, Google Checkout, or a merchant account like Authorize.net. We can also connect your site to one of many restaurant ordering sites so that customers can order online and pickup in-person.
We can build a custom package for you of tools that works within your budget constraints. We can even start with a simpler site now and expand it as your budget allows.
